Negative -black- attached to the large ground post directly underneath the top & back of engine compartment. If in doubt, look at other posts here on how to correctly charge the 12 volt battery. Next, make sure your code reader dongle is not plugged into the OBDII port under the dash. If it left on, it will drain the 12 volt battery. Then after charging the 12 volt battery fully and correctly, Remove the 12 volt battery charger, removing the negative clip first, then the positive side. Then plug your car into the main battery charging port, located under the front flap. What for blue lights to come on, showing charging in progress. Make sure that your charging timer is set to off (do that via the touch screen). Turn off "Telematics" as it is a POS and will keep trying to "phone home" until it kills your 12 volt battery.


HTH, YMMV

Thank you for the advice. Are "Telematics" a feature of Leaf Spy Pro or something in the Leaf?

First off, we need to realize the two events may be unrelated. Did you get the telematics fix? There is an update addressing undue 12 volt stress.

2nd off; there is no need to unplug your OBD device. In LS settings make sure BT is turned off when exiting LS. ALWAYS exit LS when not in use.
Is "LS" in Leaf Spy Pro?

LS is LEAF Spy. There are different versions but Pro is cheap

Telematics is equipment used by car to communicate thru cellular network for Connect

Hello everyone, and thank you Turbo3 for creating Leaf Spy Pro. It's a great tool that really shines light!

I have an urgent question regarding battery health. My 2014 Leaf has about 57000 miles and my warranty is set to expire mid-May. The range on my battery has degraded a lot to point where I can't reliably make the 54 mile round trip to work on a full charge. The dash battery health gauge just dropped it's 3rd bar 2 weeks ago, yet Spy Pro says SOH = 71.2%, full charge KWh = 15.5 and SOC = 95.1%. I'm a little confused by these numbers given it only just dropped the 3rd bar.

Related to this might be an issue with the odometer. Since the day I bought the vehicle it has been 5% high on both the odometer and the speedometer. I've had this checked out by the dealer on multiple occasions and never got a resolution. Then about 2 weeks ago, right around the time the 3rd bar dropped, the odometer started reporting the correct range, as compared to google maps and other GPS navigation tools. The speedometer is still 5% over. A few days before this change to the odometer occurred (I'm an engineer at heart and I watch these things all the time, it's my nature) I had the car at a dealer to investigate the range problem. I don't know if they made any adjustments to the odometer, but to be very clear, I'm not trying to imply any wrong doing. I just want to understand whether or not my battery ought to qualify for warranty replacement, or whether Nissan has shown any good will for a situation like mine that appears to be on the borderline.

Any help/advice will be greatly appreciated. I'm debating whether to purchase a new 2019 Leaf ePlus later this year but my experience so far is a concern.

Joe

Hello everyone, I recently got LeafSpy Pro and a WIFI OBDII adapter for a 2013 Nissan Leaf.
I followed the sequence: plug in adapter, switch on the car to Ready position, open LeafSpy.
Tried a few times when the car was parked, and LeafSpy shows 0% SOH and 0 odo (other information like temperature and cell voltage are updating.)

Did I miss something or is SOH only shown when the car is moving? Any advice is welcome. Thank you.

That is usually what happens in accessory mode

Thanks very much Dave. Feeling relieved now. Was worried about the compatibility of the adapter with the app.

If you are not putting your foot on the brake when you start the car, that puts you into Accessory mode instead of Ready mode. You have to press the brake pedal with the Start button as you normally would when preparing to drive the car away.

I am starting to consider a new Leaf Plus. What functions of Leaf Spy Pro are supported with the 2019 models?

I don't know anything specific other than I have seen a handful of LEAF Spy screen shots from the plus so have to say its likely most of them work. Realize that the 40 kwh lost a few functions but that was "somewhat" expected as a LEAF Tech did advise that Nissan starting locking down part of the CANBUS due to issues with readers on other models.
